SC Business Review - Upcoming Guests

Should SC Students be Required to Learn Pros and Cons of Evolution?

Editor's note: This show was taped before the recent compromise: http://www.thestate.com/2014/07/29/3590110/update-to-teaching-evolution-clears.html

Most businesses would agree that the topic of education is very important to them.  And this is why we discuss it from time to time.  Most recently was about a month ago when our regular Monday morning guest, John Warner, who at the time was a member of our state's Education Oversight Committee, mentioned that he voted against the EOC's recommendation to require biology students to construct scientific arguments that both support and discredit evolution.  John Warner indicated that some scientists expressed concern to him that this proposal could affect our state's efforts to recruit prominent researchers to our state such as those currently being sought for South Carolina's SmartState endowed chair program.  This morning we have the other side of that vote for you.

Mike Switzer interviews Phillip Bowers, a nuclear safety specialist with Duke Energy and member of the Education Oversight Committee who voted for that proposal, which, by the way, was not adopted by the state board of education.

Charleston Entrepreneurs Gather to Share Ideas

Many times, getting together with like minds can be one of the best ways for small business owners to share ideas and best practices that will help them to succeed.  And that's why a LowCountry entrepreneurial organization has recently launched a series of forums to accomplish just that.

Mike Switzer interviews John Osborne, co-founder and director of the Harbor Entrepreneur Center in Charleston.

Higher Capital Gains Taxes Affecting Investors

Since the financial markets have done so well over the past couple of years, many people may now be facing the downside of the upside, and that is capital gains taxes.  And our next guest says many investors may not be aware that not only are capital gains tax rates higher now, but there is an additional tax to consider as well.

Mike Switzer interviews Bryan Ballentine is a certified financial planner in Greenville, SC.

SC Economy Still a Pretty Picture

We've made the turn and are well on our way into the second half of 2014 and so one might say that it's all downhill from here.  But our next guest would beg to differ as he still sees rosy times ahead for South Carolina's economy.

Mike Switzer interviews Joey von Nessen, research economist with the University of South Carolina's Moore School of Business, and their Division of Research, which stays busy tracking and calculating our state's economic statistics.

Cocktails Stir Up Success for Charleston Couple

If you are a drinker of cocktails, you may have found it quite expensive and time-consuming to keep all the necessary ingredients on hand and to assemble them into your favorite drinks.  Our next guest says he and his wife certainly felt that way and so they decided to do something about it by creating pre-made mixes for the most popular cocktails such as an old-fashioned or tom collins.  They've been so successful that they are now are winning awards and being added to product lines around the country.

Mike Switzer interviews Joe Raya, co-founder of Bittermilk, based in Charleston.

Electronic Health Records Part of Brave New World

Besides what is referred to as Obamacare, the Affordable Care Act also mandated the conversion of paper-based record keeping of patient files to a nation of electronic health records.  Our next guest says this is a sea change that is going on quietly behind the scenes of most hospitals and healthcare providers, creating a brave new world for healthcare — particularly if these different software systems start speaking to one another to share information and if genetic information can get integrated in your health record.

Mike Switzer interviews Clay Grayson, a healthcare attorney with Grayson Thomas in Charleston, SC.
